Great job Morgan, you are peaking at the right time and can play with ANY TEAM in 3A. If you want it bad enough you can have it. Go get the title men.

Morgan Man you say you can play with ANY TEAM in 3A well that statement is true because thats the division you play in "3A" now competeing with ANY TEAM in 3A is a different story, do you remember your 70 to 53 lose to Wasatch, or your 57 to 50 lose to Hurricane and just recently a lose to Bear River 76 to 71? I predict you get 2 more loses this season to Bear River AGAIN and Juan Diego who beat Bear River, it will take more than the offense of one player to get far in State, defense is where its at and right now you are just in front of ALA with the most points allowed which makes you the 19th out of 20 worst team in 3A defensively. Offensively you are in the lead in 3A just in front of Wasatch but looking at your game against them you didn't score as high as normal and Wasatch scored above their average of 64/game. Whats you FEELINGS on the FACTS here?

Shadow,
I was at the Wasatch Morgan game and Wasatch has a fine team. I just don't believe that a rematch would turn out the same way. Morgan was off and Wasatch got the better of them at their house. And we all know how big home court is. I also dispute your facts. 1 Morgan has three players averaging double digits not just one. 2 Wasatch only beat Judge by 3 points and Morgan has beaten them twice by more. 3 Yes Morgan suffered an over time loss at Bear River, but that rivalry is as good as it gets and all the stats go out the window when they play. Two years ago when Bear River won it all; their only loss for the entire year was at Morgan. Bear River wont come into Morgan and get a win on Wednesday because Morgan is the better team. Our bigs wont foul out this time and their point guard broke his hand and is out for the season. I do believe your prediction that Morgan will loose two more games with just 4 remaining is WRONG! Morgan has become a team that has greatly improved.

This question will be answered during the final week of February. Wasatch, Morgan and Desert Hills are the elite of 3A. Morgan will not lose another region game. Neither Bear River or Juan Diego can stay with Morgan. At the same time, I'm not sure Morgan would beat Wasatch in a rematch. However, I agree that 70 -53 was an anomoly. A rematch would (will) be much, much closer. Morgans tougher region schedule may benefit them come tournament time. Both excellent programs.
